Sonnet: Nothing Is Permanent - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Some friends have left; some more are leaving too;
To greener pastures, grass, more succulent;
I wonder when comes turn to me, to you;
And if it comes, I'm sure, we won't relent.

'Tis sad that people never realize,
That all Indians are brothers and sisters;
And yet they cheat them by the game of dice;
Tho' honesty in this world sure matters.

'Ask not what your country has done for you;
Ask what you have done for it”-it is said;
The reverse saying with time becomes true;
For life is short before each one is dead.

If head is right, the tail will wag but slight;
If tail is right, the head can't show its might.
